Visual Studio Live! Celebrates 20 Years

2013 marks the 20th anniversary for Visual Studio Live! (formerly VBITS), a premiere event for the developer community that provides real-world, practical information and training on Microsoft platform technologies. This year, Visual Studio Live! continues the tradition as one of the longest running and best-known developer conferences in the United States by offering four exciting event locations: Las Vegas, Chicago, Microsoft Headquarters (Redmond, WA), and Orlando.

“2012 saw Visual Studio Live! grow in the number of events, amount of attendees and span of educational topics,” said Brent Sutton, Senior Event Director of Visual Studio Live! “2013 is shaping up to continue that trend, with more developer deep dives and co-located events that will benefit Visual Studio Live! attendees and sponsors.”

Visual Studio Live! 2013 Conferences:

  • Visual Studio Live! Las VegasMGM Grand Hotel and Casino – March 25-29
    **Co-located with Modern Apps Live! and featuring Developer Deep Dives on SQL Server and SharePoint / Office**

Each of the multi-track events include focused, cutting-edge education on the .NET platform taught by an expert faculty – including many Microsoft instructors – who make each session interactive. This unique environment creates an opportunity for attendees to discuss particular development roadblocks and walk away with actionable solutions.

In addition to the educational sessions and workshops, Visual Studio Live! attendees are also interested in learning more about building, buying and managing the development process within their organizations.
